cashtango00 - good explanation of the situation. This is a growth stock. But I am amazed at those who buy the shares and then wish for something else to happen to give it "value!" Maybe they should look themselves in the mirror and realize that they made a mistake, EDV isn't going to be paying a dividend in the next several years AND it is possible that the share price languishes as miners remain in disfavor.
But alas, it seems like when one makes an investing mistake, rather than own up to it and make the appropriate adjustment, it is more psychologically soothing to argue and indefensible point on a BB.
There is no money to payout without just adding to the credit facility, and thats assuming the credit facility doesn't contain a covenant that would allow it anyways. You are not creating wealth when you are just adding more debt to pay yourselves.
Just what I was thinking - glad EDV added those "financial advisor" group recently - it looks like that move is paying off already!
